This is a sketch of the coming Alpina B7, to be based on the new BMW 750i. Outside, there won't be much happening -- nor necessary -- beyond Alpina's new front lip, rear wing and trademark wheels. Inside, Alpina might have some minor cluster mods in store, but we wouldn't expect too much change there, either. As with the 2007 B7 and its 500 hp and 4.8-second 0-60 time, we figure the engine and suspension will be heavily redressed on this next version. Alpina could opt for the centrifugal supercharger routine again, but whatever they do will surely put healthy distance between the B7 and the 400 hp of the donor car's 4.4-liter V8. The B7 might also get BMW's rumored 8-speed transmission. It will definitely get a stratospheric price tag.

      Not bad so far.

      Looks pretty good. BMW should consider hiring Alpina to replace the current design team.

        Totally agreed. I looked at that picture then checked out pictures for the 7-Series which just came out and the difference is night and day. This picture is tucked in and smart...the normal 7-series looks...well...BORING.

      For me this basically means one thing. With some slight modification and some better wheels, the new 7er isn't nearly as ugly. Good thing, cause the press photos really make me hate it.

      So how will Alpina distinguish it's motors from BMW when BMW is going force induction with it's next line of 5,6,and7 series. Re-chipping a motor hardly seems to justify the additional price of an Alpina. I know, I know, Alpina will also gut the transmission, change the suspension, and the electronics to the suspension and upgrade the interior, plus some extra trim, but to me, what really attracted me to Alpina was that they slapped their "own" motor into the BMW. (By own, I mean, a significant number of engine parts were Alpina's + force induction.)

      Hot.

      Oh man, I love the B7!! Every time I see one in San Francisco I just drool and stop whatever I am doing. It has such presence when seen in person.


      The only thing I would like to see changed is the exhaust. I think it would look 100 times better if they put their dual exhaust pipes on opposite ends like on the 335i instead of having both on the right side.

      Other than that, the B7 rocks!
